Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 1996 by Monte Brem and Thomas Keck, StepStone is a generalist job boards, which has spread around the world so it is accessible in many countries. It specializes in creating customized solutions according to the objectives of different private markets. In France, it attracts 748 340 million views a month, which has dropped a fair bit since last year but remains high. On social media, it has a good following, even if social media is not the most success outlet for the French market: 985 followers on YouTube, 741 on Instagram, 2 120 on Twitter and 5 707 on Facebook. The LinkedIn page has 11 104 followers.
Design: The homepage is particularly simple. There is a search engine (keywords and the location) and you can tick whether you are looking for full-time or part-time work. The rest of the homepage promotes featured job offers, lists of categories and other services from StepStone (which includes the blog articles). Once in the job listing, the filters (the publication date, the language, the skills, the profession, the sector, the region, the city, the experience, the type of employment and full time or part time) appear on the left-hand side and the number of offers per subcategory are visible. The job offers are either short and simple or they include quite detailed descriptions, images and videos. The company pages can include job offers, an introduction, a logo and other images and a map.
The job board objective: StepStone has the same goal in all of the countries where it is present: it aims to help businesses grow and find the best talent on the market.
Recruiter observations: Prices are available on the website. It’s easy to create an account through the site.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account. To apply to offer, you must include a CV, but you don't actually need an account.
The job offers: There are over 4 755 job offers. Most of them are in sales, distribution and marketing.
Reactivity: The team answers quickly (within 24 hours) and you can also contact them through chat support.
Special features: The names of the team members; the press section; the whitepapers; the partner websites; the blog (in different sections); job alerts; the app; the webinars & events; the chat support; the previous/next buttons.
Verdict: In France, StepStone isn’t quite as well-known as it is in Germany. Even if it is a practical job board, which gets to the point, your job offers might not be as visible on StepStone as they would be on another more popular French job board.
